All families have the right to affordable health care and the basic resources they need to lead healthy, productive lives.

We support policies and programs that help poor and low-income families access quality, affordable health care, clean water, and healthy food:

  • Universal access to health care, including dental care and mental health services
  • Medicaid expansion in all states
  • Expanded health insurance subsidies and coverage
  • Expanded health care access in rural areas and communities of color
  • Preventive health programs that reflect and respect the culture of local communities
  • Shelters, health centers, programs, and sanctuary policies that include, serve, and protect migrants
  • Safe, accessible treatment for opioid and drug addiction
  • Strong health and wellness supports for children, people with disabilities, and seniors
  • Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  • Fair and equal access to health care services for undocumented migrants, regardless of the length of their stay in the U.S.
  • Food security programs, such as temporary food assistance (SNAP)
  • Community markets and programs that expand access to healthy food
  • Strong rules and funding for clean water and air
  • Programs and funding for community cleanups and green spaces

With equal and affordable access to vital resources for good health, poor and low-income families can live, work, and lead with dignity and purpose.
